Stations for Unit 1.1 Scientific Method
Transcript of Stations for Unit 1.1 Scientific Method
What is the Scientific Method?
What is the point of an experiment? Why do we need a method? What are the steps? Check out your book, pages 24-25 to help you out. Then click on the videos below to help you understand the steps of the scientific method.
SCIENTIFIC METHOD SIMULATION
This site contains a virtual lab about erosion. Students must change the variables until they can get
less than 2 liters of soil that erodes away. Fill out the observation sheet as you complete the simulation!
WHAT IS A VARIABLE? HOW MANY ARE THERE?
Theory and Laws
So what is the difference in a theory and a law? Is a theory just an educated guess like in CSI? Read the article below and answer the questions on the study guide.
CHECK YOUR UNDERSTANDING:
TAKE A QUIZ!!
When you have finished all the other tasks, take a practice quiz to make sure you understand the parts of the scientific method. Click the link below to watch the BRAINPOP.COM video and take the quiz and review using the activities...especially the vocabulary!
CREATE YOUR OWN EXPERIMENT
In this activity, the student will build a unique and unusual structure using curcuits. The student will then write instructions for how to build the structure. Students will swap sets of instructions and attempt to build the structures of other students using the instructions written by the other
students. Try this simulation first, then follow the directions for the project sheet.
During an experiment, in order to get a valid test, you need to change up variables. Click on the cartoon below to learn about the types of variables. Take some notes so you have them for your test. click on the cartoon below.
